A Room By Room Guide To Rejuvenating Your Home

A Room By Room Guide To Rejuvenating Your Home
Is your home looking a little frayed at the edges? Do you want to breathe new life into your house, but you’re not sure where to start? Just by making one or two changes in each room, you can make your home feel like a brand new place of brilliance that will make your friends and neighbours positively green with envy. . .

Kitchen Chic You don’t have to go to the expense of installing a whole new kitchen to give the engine room of your home a fresh new look. Buy some brightly coloured paint or super shiny gloss and coat your cupboards for a contemporary look that your friends will want to copy. Accessories like a kitsch wall clock, matching oven gloves and apron or fun prints will help you to complete your new cooking and eating room.

Love your living room Make your sitting room a contemporary beacon of warmth by adding an electric fireplace. You can read this article to find out more about how to choose the best option for your home. Make your sofa and armchairs look super comfy with extra cushions and throws, and change that old light shade for something that reflects your sophisticated style.

Highlight your hall People often neglect to put their decorative stamp on the hall as it’s not usually used as a functioning room. However, it’s the first thing that visitors to your house will see, so make sure you create the wow factor with a welcoming rug and some pretty fresh flowers. Add paintings or photographs to make it individual to you and your family.

Big up your bathroom Get rid of all the almost empty bottles and tubes that line your shower or bath, and replace them with a small number of luxury products. If you still want to use your budget items, just hide them away in the bathroom cabinet. To brighten up tired tiles, give them a coat or two of paint. White is ideal for creating a clean, minimalist look, but feel free to add a splash of colour if you’d like a bit more personality in the bathroom!

Make your bedroom a boudoir Tired bedrooms can be transformed with carefully chosen new bed linen. Lots of cushions and pillows on the bed will make your room look and feel as luxurious as a hotel, and you can pick these up cheaply in stores or online. If you fancy making some cushions yourself, have a look at this how-to guide. These are some great tips on transforming kids’ bedrooms.

If making all these changes to your house at once is a little daunting, just choose one room at a time. If you’re anything like me, though, you won’t want to stop once you’ve seen the initial results! You don’t have to start from scratch or change everything in each room to see a visible difference – just a few tweaks here and there can be all you need to make your home much nicer to be in than before.
